At the half of the dream11 IPL, there were 100% chances of RCB and DC qualification. But from the last few matches, the entire situation has changed. Both teams are in a critical situation. The chances of RCB playoffs have become half now.
The great batsman AB de Villiers said that they are feeling terrible after the 3 consecutive defeats. He said the road to playoffs is looking very difficult now. Last night, SRH defeated RCB by 5 wickets in Sharjah.
RCB has lost 3 matches in a row against Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, and Sunrisers Hyderabad. It seems that RCB will qualify easily for the playoffs. But now, its way to playoffs has become a little difficult.
RCB has to play its last match against Delhi Capitals. If RCB wins this match, then they will qualify for the playoffs otherwise RCB has to depend on the results of other teams. The net run-rate will play an important role in the playoffs qualification.
AB response for RCB playoffs:
AB De Villiers said, “It’s a terrible feeling to lose three in a row, you never want to do that. But that’s the nature of this tournament, anything can happen. If you lose three in a row, you can win three in a row as well and that will be our thinking looking forward,”
He added the pitch and outfield of Sharjah were too slow. It became very hard for us to hit boundaries. The boundaries get converted into singles and doubles. This factor increases pressure.
On the other hand, SRH is playing very good and its net run rate is better than all other teams except Mumbai Indians. If SRH wons its next match then most probably, It can qualify for the playoffs as its net run rate is very good.
RCB has to win its next match in every condition otherwise, it has to depend on the run rate and results of other matches. Both DC and RCB have 14 points in 13 matches. De Villiers said, ” it is going to have a hard competition but we will try our best to qualify for the playoffs.”
